WWE star Jey Uso still hasn’t revealed what side he’s on as SmackDown ended with a scrap between his brother Jimmy and Sami Zayn.

The Bloodline continues to falter in the weeks after the Royal Rumble, particularly in the wake of Sami’s emotional Elimination Chamber homecoming which saw Jimmy cost him the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.

Jey refused to get involved in Montreal, but it’s unclear where his allegiances lie as Jimmy was planning to confront him at the end of Friday’s show.

The latter had been warned that Roman Reigns would deal with the situation next week if it wasn’t sorted.

It was actually Sami who came out to talk to Jimmy, trying to make him see how manipulative the Tribal Chief has been while Jimmy accused the former Honorary Uce of causing cracks in their family.

In the end, Jimmy went on the attack by Sami fought back and laid him out with a Helluva kick before hightailing it out of the there when Solo Sikoa appeared to chase him off.

Jey watched on from the crowd, keeping a neutral expression as WWE continues to make magic with this long running saga.

The end game appears to be Sami reuniting with Kevin Owens to defeat The Usos for the tag team titles at WrestleMania 39, but there is a genuine joy in the journey and all its twists and turns.

In the first match of the night, Imperium picked up the win over Braun Strowman, Ricochet and Madcap Moss in a banger of a match.

Giovanni Vinci, Ludwig Kaiser and GUNTHER looked strong here, and the Intercontinental Champion may have his hands full after Drew McIntyre appeared on the ramp to watch the action unfold.

After the bell, The Viking Raiders attacked the Scottish Warrior until his pal Sheamus made the save – hopefully the latter can make it a Triple Threat for the IC Title at WrestleMania.

Backstage, Rey Mysterio and Santos Escobar had a respectful exchange interrupted by the masked legend’s son Dominik – more on that shortly.

LA Knight came out and was on fire trying to lay down his own path to WrestleMania, but he was interrupted by a returning New Day which set up a match with Kofi Kingston.

The two stars fought in a good bout with Kofi getting the relatively surprising win after Xavier Woods distracted LA Knight with the trombone.

Charlotte Flair was meant to come face to face with Rhea Ripley to build to their SmackDown Women’s Title match at WrestleMania 39 – but first, she was met by Dominik Mysterio.

The hardened criminal talked about his rivalry with his own dad and his relationship with Rhea, before Charlotte cut him down with a comment about her own husband Andrade being a ‘real Latino man’.

Eventually, Rhea hit the ring to stare down her championship rival as their latest feud starts to simmer.

Shayna Baszler defeated Natalya in a decent match before the Queen of Spades and Ronda Rousey attacked the veteran after the bell until Tegan Nox made the save.

Bray Wyatt brought back the Firefly Fun House complete with Uncle Howdy reading the weather before Bray appeared in a in a creepy black mask asking: ‘If I tell you a story, can you keep a secret?’

Karrion Kross had insulted Rey Mysterio’s worth as a dad, leading to another match between the rivals with the former getting the win after Dom distracted his dad.

Dom trash talked and goaded his father after the match, and for a second Rey looked like he might actually attack his son before he came to his senses and walked out of the ring.

WWE SmackDown airs Friday nights at 1am on BT Sport.
